Abdominal ultrasound

What is an abdominal ultrasound?

Abdominal ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic test that allows the assessment of internal organs such as the liver, bile ducts, pancreas, kidneys and others. It helps detect various diseases, including deposits in the urinary system, inflammation, tumors, cysts and post-traumatic damage. Ultrasound is also used to monitor cancer treatment and detect metastases.

How to prepare for the test?

Preparation for an abdominal ultrasound includes following an easily digestible diet the day before the examination and avoiding food and drink (except for unsweetened water) a few hours before the examination. It is also advisable to take medications that remove air from the gastrointestinal tract, such as Espumisan.

The day before the test:

  • An easily digestible diet: Avoid raw vegetables, fruit and dark bread.
  • Take a medicine that removes air from the digestive tract, such as Espumisan.

On the day of the test:

  • If the test takes place before noon: Be on an empty stomach from 6:00 p.m. the day before.
  • If the test takes place in the afternoon: Avoid eating at least 6 hours before the test.

Also avoid drinking coffee, strong tea, smoking and chewing gum.

Bladder filling

Proper imaging of the small pelvic organs requires a filled bladder. 1-2 hours before the test, drink 1-4 glasses of still water and do not urinate. Bring your previous imaging results with you, if you have them.

Course of the study

The examination takes about 15-20 minutes and usually takes place in a supine position. The patient’s skin is covered with a special gel that ensures full contact of the head of the device with the skin. The doctor moves the head of the device, obtaining images of the organs visible on the monitor.

Indications for abdominal ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasound is recommended for people experiencing unexplained abdominal pain, changes in this area (nodules, thickening), bleeding from the genital tract or gastrointestinal tract, diarrhoea, vomiting, sudden weight loss, yellowing of the skin, urinary or stool retention, and after injuries.

Abdominal ultrasound is an effective and safe diagnostic method that allows you to assess the condition of internal organs and detect a variety of diseases. Proper preparation for the test is crucial for obtaining reliable results. If you need to consult and perform the test, please contact our specialists.

 

THYROID ULTRASOUND

Thyroid ultrasound is the primary imaging study in patients with suspected thyroid disease. It is used to assess the size, shape, location and morphological evaluation of the gland. An integral component of thyroid ultrasound is the evaluation of the surrounding lymph nodes.
The indications for thyroid ultrasound are:

  • differentiation of autoimmune and non-autoimmune thyroid diseases,
  • evaluation of cervical lymph nodes,
  • enlargement of the gland without a palpable nodule,
  • palpable nodule or nodular goiter,
  • control of the size of benign thyroid nodules/focal lesions,
  • monitoring effects of the treatment.

Breast ultrasound:

This is an examination of the mammary glands using ultrasound. It is usually recommended for young women, since their breasts are made up of very dense glandular tissue. In that case, ultrasound picks up any changes better than X-rays. It is recommended to perform a preventive breast examination once a year. The examination is painless and quick, taking about 15 minutes.

 

Which day of the cycle is the best to perform the examination?

Breast ultrasound can be performed at any time during the menstrual cycle, but it is best to go for it in the first half of the cycle. Before menstruation, the breasts are often tender and swollen. In addition, the water content of the breast tissue increases, making it difficult to interpret the image seen.
The ultrasound examination should be preceded by palpation (touch) of the breast, so that the sensitivity and specificity of the diagnosis can be improved.

When to perform a breast ultrasound – doctors’ recommendations:

  • after the age of 20, breast self-examination performed once a month, preferably on the same day, and at least one follow-up breast examination with a doctor (gynecologist, oncologist) is recommended.After the
  • age of 25, breast self-examination once a month, palpation of the breasts with a doctor and prophylactic breast ultrasound performed once a year are recommended. In young patients, up to the age of 40, the breasts are dominated by glandular tissue.
  • after age 40, monthly breast self-examination, palpation examination with a doctor every six months, breast ultrasound once a year and mammography every two years are recommended.

Indications for breast ultrasound examination:

If you belong to a high-risk group, for example, there have been cases of breast cancer in your family, or you have been diagnosed with BRCA1 and BRCA 2 gene mutations, you need to undergo periodic examinations. Breast ultrasound is absolutely recommended if:

  • a woman complains about unusual breast pain occurring outside the menstrual period,
  • if on palpation examination there are felt various types of hardening, thickening, lumps, tightening of the skin on the nipples, changes in the nipples, palpable lumps in the armpit pits.
  • if women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding have an unusual nipple leakage

Breast ultrasound during pregnancy and during lactation
there are no contraindications to breast ultrasound during lactation.

GYNAECOLOGICAL (TRANSVAGINAL) USG

Gynaecological ultrasound, also known as transvaginal ultrasound, is an important diagnostic procedure that allows an accurate assessment of the organs in the pelvis. The examination is performed using a transvaginal probe protected in each case by a gel-coated latex sheath.

How does a transvaginal ultrasound proceed?

During the examination, the patient lies down on a couch, and the doctor inserts a vaginal probe that emits ultrasound. The location of the probe makes it possible to evaluate the internal organs. The examination is non-invasive and usually painless, although sometimes patients may experience some discomfort. It usually lasts a few minutes, and the doctor can immediately assess any changes.
In some cases, the examination can be performed through the abdominal shell, especially in patients who have not yet begun sexual intercourse.

For what purpose is a transvaginal examination performed?

Transvaginal ultrasound, also known as gynaecological ultrasound, is an effective diagnostic tool for identifying various diseases, abnormalities and changes in gynaecological organs. Below are the most common conditions that can be detected with this test:

  • abnormal thickness of the endometrium
  • polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • ovarian cysts
  • uterine myomas
  • cancerous lesions of the genital organs
  • abnormal structure of uterine muscles, bones and pelvic tissues.

It is worth noting that transvaginal ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive procedure that provides valuable diagnostic information. However, the final interpretation of the results should always be made by an experienced specialist who will take into account the clinical context and other available medical data of the patient.

When it is worth performing such a test:

  • unusual bleeding from the genital tract
  • lower abdominal pain
  • unusual complaints related to the menstrual cycle
  • diagnosis of infertility
  • monitoring of pregnancy
  • assessment of the condition of genital organs
  • preventive examination

It is worth noting that the decision to perform a gynecological ultrasound should be made individually by the doctor on the basis of the patient’s health history, symptoms and diagnostic needs. Regular visits to the gynecologist and the performance of recommended examinations are key to maintaining women’s reproductive health.
